Wanting to make a drink holder that plays music when I lift up the drink! Anyone have plans for this? Answered

Hey all! I have just finished making my Zombie Perk Cola Bottles (link : https://www.instructables.com/id/Nazi-Zombies-Perk-Cola-Bottles/  ) and I'm wanting to make a platform so where I lift up one of these bottles, it starts playing a certain song/sound. Does anyone already have a plan for something like this?

Essentially, you're talking about a music box, mechanical or electrical.

Mechanical I'm sure you're familiar with -- weight holds a pin down that keeps the mechanism from turning, and with the weight gone a spring pushes that obstruction out of the way.

Electrical would be essentially similar -- weight holds a switch open, and removing the weight lets it close. Use that to control a small digital audio player, either adapting an existing one, obtaining a sound record/playback chip, or cobbling it together yourself out of an Arduino or other microcontroller.

See other music-playing Instructables, adapt to suit.
